Passion for health cannot be taught. Despite being an elite athlete much of his youth as well as a NCAA Division I Sprinter, after college, Mattie gained a significant amount of weight, suffering from poor gut health and inflammation. This blazed a trail to a series of physical and mental health issues. The year was 2017 - severely overweight and desperate to seek the knowledge to restore his health, Mattie turned to the disciplines of bodybuilding. In 2018, he competed in his very first NPC show where he won the overall sword in Classic Physique, entering the National stage. In 2019, Mattie Swept the CA State Championships, becoming the only Mr. California in history to win the title in two divisions. He then went on to claim IFBB pro status at the Chicago Jr. Nationals, his 5th show ever.
Despite his trophies, medals and accolades, Mattie also knows what it’s like to be at rock bottom - out of shape, poor self esteem and wanting more out of life. Whether you want your dream body, aspire to become the next physique champion or simply want to improve your overall health, Mattie possesses the knowledge & real life experience to guide you there. The human body is like a work of art; an extraordinary masterpiece. Most people have the canvas and the brushes but simply do not know how to paint. Make the decision to unlock your full potential and together you can make a powerful change!
Working with Mattie changed my life in ways that words can’t even describe. I was always a heavy set kid with dreams of fitting in and feeling confident in my own skin. I had dreamt of competing in a bodybuilding show ever since I was 12 years old and decided to hire Mattie as a coach in January 2019.
In just 16 weeks I had dropped over 55 pounds, achieved my dreams of falling into single digit body-fat percentage, and won my class at The NPC West Coast Classic. Mattie opened my eyes to an entirely new understanding of bodybuilding with his extensive knowledge of nutrition and training regimens, while also pushing me through physical and mental doubts during my prep, which ultimately led to a victory in many different regards.
Mattie was there for me every step of the way, helping me regain motivation in times I fell short of my own expectations. He not only got me in the best shape of my life, but more importantly helped me grow into the best version of myself mentally, physically and spiritually.
Mattie is an amazing coach! He is knowledgeable, caring and understanding. He set me up with a personalized online/virtual program, but it felt like I had a personal trainer with me all the time. When I started, I felt discouraged and frustrated with my body and weight. I was also very self-conscious. Mattie made me feel comfortable with my goals and made them realistic and attainable.
Before getting started, Mattie made sure that he asked me questions about my current fitness level and nutrition habits and made sure he understood my goals. We made small daily goals, as well as weekly goals. All of the little wins added up and I started to feel more confident with my body and overall health.
I checked in with Mattie weekly and we updated and modified my goals. He was very good about fielding my questions or concerns. Mattie really listened to me and tailored meal plans and fitness routines that were appropriate and achievable for where I was at on my fitness/health journey. He always offered and/suggested modifications when needed. I am so thankful for Matt and all he did to help me meet my fitness and health goals.
Mattie helped my then 20 year old son rehabilitate from a serious lower back injury. He suffered from an L5S1 disk herniation that led to severe pain and immobility.
My son could not bend over and touch his toes. Mattie patiently worked with him while providing a positive and encouraging training environment and used his knowledge of the human body to formulate a recovery plan.
With Mattie’s help my son made a full recovery and exceeded his pre-injury strength and flexibility metrics. Starting off, he could not complete basic mobility movements. By the end of his 20 week program he was deadlifting twice his body weight which is both amazing and unheard of considering his prior condition. He now plays on the hockey team for Long Beach State and is stronger than ever.
Mattie was key in helping my son reach his goals. I would highly recommend him for your personal training and coaching needs.
